Joe Delaney - Joe is ecstatic about serving the Thespians of Troupe #69 as an officer for the 2021-2022 school year! His first experience with theatre was in 8th grade when he played the role of Oliver Warbucks in George Washington Middle School's musical production of Annie. Ever since then, theatre has been his second home. Joe has appeared in many shows at Senior, and just recently served as a Sound Crew Head for the 2020-2021 theatre season. Joe is committed to serving all thespians equally to ensure the success of the troupe, and would like to make it clear that he is here to help whoever might need it!
Scout Kuehn - Scout is very delighted to represent the Thespians of Troupe #69 as a Thespian Officer this year. She was inducted in 2020 and is so very excited for the new experiences and memories that this year has to bring. Scout has always had a burning passion for theatre. From her first show, Annie, to her latest show, Xanadu, her passion has never dimmed once. This is Scout’s first year as a Costumes Crew Head, and she is very eager to learn the ropes of costumes! One thing she wants all to know is that no matter how scared you are, never be afraid to try new things and to get involved as much as you possibly can.
Hunter Isaacson - Hunter is overjoyed to represent and serve his fellow thespians as a board member for Troupe #69 for the 2021-2022 school year!

This will also be his second year as a Paint Crew Head (aka the best crew). Hunter has many wonderful and funny memories from theatre and he hopes to make more this year. Hunter hopes to create a friendly department where all feel welcome, and wishes to spread his passion for theatre with everyone he possibly can. He can't wait to see what this exciting year has in store!
